Dr. Daniela Palombo (she/her/hers) investigates cognitive and neural factors associated with how we form and retain autobiographical memories and how this may differ across individuals. She also examines how autobiographical memory influences non-mnemonic functions, with a primary focus on future imagination and decision making. Her research approach is multi-faceted; She explores these topics in healthy individuals as well as in neuropsychological (e.g., amnesia) and psychiatric populations (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder). She also uses neuroimaging methods, including MRI and fMRI.
